How a Payday Loan Works: The Tyler’s Bad Flu

Man taking his temperature

Sometimes life doesn’t go as planned. While we like to feel like we have it all figured out, a slight turn in events can throw off even the best laid plans. We know that it may be hard to find the help that you need. Here’s how a payday loan works.

Through a series of short stories, we will explain how anyone can benefit from a payday loan. Although these examples are based on fictional characters, they demonstrate how Pay2Day can help in real-life situations. 

Meet Tyler

Tyler works at a local butcher. He loves his job, but the benefits aren’t great. Tyler has always been a reliable worker. His boss loves him and there has even been talk of a raise.

Like most of us, Tyler has bills to pay, so he picks up extra hours whenever he can. This is great for making extra money, but he eventually found himself running on empty. He was often tired, but in this case, it was more than that: he started feeling a little sick. Tyler pushed through it, thinking that he was just exhausted. As a day or two went by, Tyler began to feel worse and he soon realized he had the flu.

Tyler’s heart dropped. He knew the rules. He works with food; he couldn’t go to work with a contagious illness. But his job doesn’t provide sick days. Tyler didn’t want to take the days off, but he knows it would be even worse if he showed up to work and made all of his customers sick.

With no other choice, Tyler made the tough decision to stay home. He knew he should be resting, but all he could think about was the bills that were due that week. Although he worked all the time, he hadn’t really been able to build up his savings. He knew if he could make it to his next payday, he’d be okay, but what to do in the meantime?

He called up his sister and she suggested Pay2Day. She said, it’s simple: all you have to do is bring in a few documents, fill out some paperwork, and they will loan you what you need.

Tyler could then rest easy. He took a few days to recover and then went back to work. After his shift on his first day back, he found the nearest Pay2Day store. He was surprised how easy the process was. No longer stressed about paying his monthly bills, he could pay his loan back on his next payday.

If you find that you need a little extra cash to get you through a short-term financial crisis, Pay2Day can help. Find a retail store near you to get started.
